Art Print Description:
For decades, Atlanta has been a growing city constantly paving over and building up, so it’s always a pleasure to know that there are some pieces of Atlanta history – of the old Atlanta – that are still there. A perfect example of a surviving landmark is Mary Mac’s Tea Room. This Atlanta tradition opened its doors in 1945 and has stayed so close to its origins of good southern cooking that Mary MacKenzie would still recognize the menu. Mary Mac’s Tea Room was one of more than a dozen opened by enterprising women in the post-war years. Many of them were widowed and seeking a way to earn an income in a world that wasn’t quite ready for women restaurateurs yet. Tea rooms were sort of an in between respectable vocation. Mary Mac’s Tea Room having been through just two owners since then is the only Tea Room left in Atlanta and still in its original (expanded) location. You don’t get much more genuine old Atlanta than that, do you?
I always love to tackle local landmarks and Mary Mac’s Tea Room to me has that classic vibe of a southern eatery. The outside is tidy and neat but unassuming. Only the big vintage red sign tells you that a restaurant is inside. It’s been my experience that some of the best southern cooking comes in modest restaurants that barely even have a sign so Mary Mac’s Tea Room is a cut above the rest on that point. And since I love a pop of red, that classic sign was a fun part of this Midtown Atlanta art print.
In fact Mary Mac’s Tea Room is so classically Atlanta that it was mentioned in an episode of the hit TV series, Designing Women. In the episode titled “The Women of Atlanta” Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter) suggested if the photographer was looking for the real women of Atlanta he should try “the blue-haired ladies that play bridge over at Mary Mac’s Tea Room.” Doesn’t that paint a beautiful picture?
I’d love to hear what brings you to this particular old Atlanta art print? Have you eaten at Mary Mac’s Tea Room? Maybe you haunted the place as a student at nearby Georgia Tech? Whatever called you here, if you’re looking for a genuine piece of Old Atlanta, I think you’ve found it here. I would love if you took a few moments to share your connection to this Atlanta art print and feel free to ask any questions that might help you in your search for Atlanta art for sale.

I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.

I love it!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.

Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
